Camera List

The camera list at the top of the Camera tab contains all the cameras for the scene. In the camera list, the Free Camera is always available and cannot be locked or overwritten. It can always be selected and remains independent of camera animations.

Add Camera

To create a new camera, select Add new camera  to the left of the camera list. This will add the current camera view to the Camera List.

Cameras can be renamed for easy identification and better organization, simply right-click and select Rename.


If you are angle-hunting, you can setup your screenshot settings to create a camera with each screenshot, this way you only have to press the hotkey P to create a new camera every time you find a camera angle that might work.

Add Camera and Environment Studio

The Add Camera and Environment Studio is a Pro feature that allows you to add a Studio along with the currently active camera and environment.

Note: This replaces the Viewset functionality from KeyShot 5/6. Read more information about the Studio feature and Viewset to Studio conversion here.

Add Camera animation

You can add a Camera animation via the context menu - right click the camera you want to animate, select Animation and the type of animation you want to add. Learn more about Camera Animations.
